    Can't seem to upload script to Apache


    Hello, I am very new to MySQL so forgive me. Currently I am attempting to successfully upload this script to Apache:

    Code:
    <?php
    mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "mypass") or die(mysql_error());
    echo "Connected to MySQL<br />";
    ?>
    So that when I view the .php page it displays "Connected to MySQL." Instead what it displays is nothing at all. I am running linux and I have all my .php files in /srv/http. I can see them in localhost but when I click on the appropriate file with the above code it doesn't work. Is there a problem with my syntax or am I doing something else wrong? I am following this tutorial:

    MySQL Tutorial - Connect

    But it doesn't seem to have a very good explanation of how to upload the .php to my webserver.

    I should also mention that I have other php scripts on my localhost that I can see fine. It's just the script with mysql in it that doesn't seem to work.

    Hi,

    Does it work from the command line? E.g.:

    Code:
    php mysql.php
    Is there anything in the Apache log files?

    Code:
    /var/log/apache2/
